6. How to contact us
IP address: When your web browser or email application requests a web page or email from another computer on the internet, it automatically gives that computer the address where it should send the information. This is called your computer's IP address. For users who are accessing the internet from a dial-up internet service provider, the IP address will be different every time you log on. 3ie uses IP address information only to learn about the geographical make-up of its web site traffic.
Web beacons: Also known as clear gifs, web bugs or pixel tags, these are tiny graphics with a unique identifier, similar in function to cookies, and are used to allow us to count users who have visited certain pages and to help determine the effectiveness of promotional or advertising campaigns. When used in HTML-formatted email messages, web beacons can tell the sender whether and when the email has been opened. In contrast to cookies, which are stored on a user's computer hard drive, web beacons are embedded invisibly on web pages.
